SCREAM MAKER Release Dystopian Video For "Mirror, Mirror"

Are we threatened with technological enslavement? Warsaw-based heavy metal band, Scream Maker, answers affirmatively with their new dystopian video, "Mirror, Mirror", which is promoting their new album, BloodKing, out on January 27. You can watch the music video below.

"Artificial intelligence, computers and automation could be a blessing, but in the wrong hands, such as those of autocratic rulers or oligarchs, they become a threat to our freedom. This is what we sing about in this song. The corrupting nature of power is a main theme throughout the entire album. The lyrics were written before the pandemic, but they are even more relevant today," says Sebastian Stodolak, the band's frontman.

Scream Maker is a Warsaw-based heavy metal band that has been on the market for over a decade. Scream Maker has released four music albums, including the one described above, played over 300 concerts, including those at the Metalfest festival and the Przystanek Woodstock festival, as well as six tours in China. The group has opened for Judas Priest, Megadeth, Motorhead and Saxon, among others. The band is also known for its collaboration with Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), Alessandro Del Vecchio (Jorn) and for organizing a memorial concert in memory of Ronnie James Dio. The band music is played on the airwaves of Antyradio, "Trójka", Radio Wnet or Radio Rzeszów.

The new album of Scream Maker is entitled BloodKing. It will see the light of day on January 27. The band is already conducting a pre-sale. Just send an email to screammakerband@gmail.com.

The band's last album, Back Against The World, was released in 2016, and since then the band has been busy with touring.

"We've already toured China 6 times, we organize the Dio memorial every year. The songs for the new album have been composed long ago, but there was a lack of breath to sit down, rip, mix and release them," says Sebastian.

Jan Radosz, the band's bassist, who recorded the album, adds that, "while the sound of the previous two albums was the responsibility of Alessandro Del Vecchio, known, among others, from Jorn Lande's band, this album we entrusted to our compatriot Tomasz "Zed" Zalewski. But Alessandro also worked on it mixing two tracks. I think the album also stands out in terms of drums. Here Kuba Mikulski and Przemek Nalazek shared their talent."

Sebastian laid down the melody lines, Jan co-arranged and recorded the tracks, but it is primarily Michał Wrona who is behind the compositions. "I think that on this album we show a bit different face than on the previous albums, much more aggressive and progressive at the same time, although we don't avoid traditional, catchy classic heavy metal themes. It's hard to get rid of Judas Priest or Iron Maiden inspirations," adds Michał.

The album consists of as many as 15 compositions, which opens up a real space for diversity. Thrash motifs of the title track "BloodKing" contrast with melodic compositions like "Join The Mob" or progressive "Candle In The Wind".
